Lakers Injury Report: Blake, Nash, Bryant At Least A Month Away

NBA: Sacramento Kings at Los Angeles LakersThe Lakers have been the most injury ravaged team in the NBA, especially at the point guard position. Steve Nash hasn’t been on the court since the middle of November due to nerve root irritation, while Steve Blake went out in December due to an elbow injury. Couple those with Jordan Farmar tearing his hamstring yet again, plus Kobe Bryant and Xavier Henry also being lost and the Lakers are down to Kendall Marshall manning the point.

It is still unknown exactly when most of these guys are returning, but we do have an update on a couple of them. According to ESPN LA’s Dave McMenamin, it will still be a while before we see Nash and Blake on the court:

The Lakers’ Grammy trip starts on January 15 and ends January 26 so it seems pretty reasonable to believe that Nash, at best, won’t be back until February, while Blake being reevaluated on the first is right in line with the six-week diagnosis given, when his injury was first revealed.

Kobe Bryant was also seen shooting some free throws today, but according to McMenamin, we shouldn’t read too much into it:

It is looking like February is the month that we could see something resembling a full Lakers roster. Of course that’s assuming the Lakers don’t lose anybody else during that time span, and with their luck this season, that seems unlikely.

    Wasn’t Nash a month away about a week or two ago?

    Honestly I’ll applaud the guy if he can play 1 NBA game running up and down the court smh hes done.

    Don’t get me wrong I love Steve Nash one of the best PG ever however father time is calling

    • Steve Perry

      Exactly, man. I think most Lakers fans have already given up on Steve Nash ever making a significant contribution. He was a great player, but his time is up even if he doesn’t realize it.

      To be accurate it has nothing to do with Father Time. He’s dealing with nerve problems that are the result of the broken leg. Either way it’s not looking good, but I think it’s possible that he can come back and finish the season. Time will tell, I guess.

  • LakersHeatBeef

    Steve Nash has not played much the last couple years.He is ready to retire IMO.

  • hookedonnews

    That doesn’t sound like anything more than speculation about Nash. He was supposed to be re-evaluated at some point. Has that happened?
